One of the more interesting pieces to cash in on the late sixties psychedelic craze, this advertising brochure produced for medical professionals gives a brief, factual introduction to the then most well known and at the time relatively new compounds being used on a recreational basis. Starting with mescaline, moving onto [the now almost unheard of, but then 5 year old] DOM/ STP, nutmeg, psilocybin, LSD, and finally ending on that worldwide scourge marihuana [sic].
While lacking the sensationalized hysteria of the era found in most writings about these drugs, this piece begins with the note 'There are no approved medical indications for these agents', and ends on a flat, but doubtful note about the prospects of such.
Finally, like any good educational commercial enterprise, the whole book finishes up exiting through the gift shop with the last pages dedicated to descriptions of medications manufactured by Schering consisting mostly of tranquilizers and antidepressants that are definitely approved for medical use.
